SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Kind of trivial topic, but...What do you do for these? At my med school we used to just pinch and use glue. During residency I've seen a few ways with monocryl... 1. Single buried suture 2. Single horizontal mattress 3. Untied Subcuticular suture with ends cut after glue I tend to prefer the glue only option on fatter people with redundant skin and no tension, and if my attendings insist on suture I like the horizontal mattress. My least favorite is the buried suture because I can never get the edges to get close enough.
